Auchnagatt (Scottish Gaelic: Achadh nan Cat) is a village and rural area in Buchan, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, situated on the Ebrie Burn and on the A948 road between Ellon and New Deer. Ellon is a picturesque town situated by the River Ythan in the beautiful countryside of Aberdeenshire and ideally placed for further amenities. The areas surrounding Ellon have a rich agricultural heritage that is told in the words of the bothy ballads – traditional songs that were originally sung by farm workers in the north east of Scotland. The shopping facilities available in Ellon cater for everyday needs and amenities include hotels, restaurants and specialist shops. Leisure and sporting facilities are available at the new community swimming pool and sports complex, rugby, football and hockey pitches at The Meadows Sports Complex, and golf at the McDonald Golf Club with Trump International stretching down the coast. Nursery and primary schooling are provided at Auchnagatt Primary with secondary education at Mintlaw Academy.


Since purchasing the property a little over three years ago the current proprietors have put in considerable investment and created an ideal smallholding for equestrian or agricultural use. Along with the extended and refurbished farmhouse is a setting of around 8 acres. The land is separated into an area of two fields and two small paddock areas with the perimeters being enclosed by new stock fencing. A substantial recently completed barn has the configuration to contain further loose boxes or be adapted to a range of uses. Planning permission exists for a derelict bothy to be used as a business unit for those considering working from home. There is a wonderful commercial opportunity when the time suits to progress with the planning permission for a 3 and 4 bedroom residential unit within the U shaped steading which has been maintained in good order.

The farmhouse itself has a front aspect of rolling countryside views. A welcoming hallway provides access into the sitting room with twin aspect corner windows and a focal point being the wood burning stove. Opposite is the dining room, again with twin aspect corner windows; this room is currently used as bedroom 4. Informal living space is catered for with the dining kitchen which is the hub of the house. Complete with solid wood base and wall cabinets with contrasting work surfaces, the centre point is the stainless steel finish range cooker with extractor hood. Everyday laundry tasks and access into the policies is provided by the laundry/boot room. This also affords a great storage area for outdoor clothing. The ground floor is completed by a bathroom with white suite and over bath shower. At mezzanine level is the third bedroom used as guest room with built in wardrobes and two large windows. The first floor is home to the principal bedroom which has an extensive range of fitted wardrobes, and a further double bedroom. A box room provides further storage and planning permission exists for this to be converted to a bathroom over an extended front porch.

Square Footage: 1,721 sq ft
